The Jeffco school district has fired the former principal of Ute Meadows Elementary School, who stands accused of sexual assault on a minor.
The district placed Steven Weigum, 55, on administrative leave March 10, the day after his arrest. The school board was notified at its May 7 meeting that Weigum had been let go, district spokeswoman Lisa Pinto said.
Pinto said the district would not comment on an ongoing legal matter. Weigum had been with Jeffco Public Schools since July 2001, when he was hired as principal at Bergen Valley Elementary in Evergreen.
